This is commendable to clean the city
However refuse disposal and evacuation is more not to citizens but the agencies involved
Buckets for refuse collections were abolished in the state
Bus stop turned to refuse dump sites as local governments authorizes have taken over dump sites
More is required from the authorities to look inward please
Thank you
